My feet touched the field at Fenway

I just returned from Boston, as I mentioned yesterday.  Possibly the coolest thing that we did was take a tour of Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox.  The bestest part of the tour was that we got to walk on center field near the green monster! I am not a serious baseball fan though I do follow a few teams, including the Red Sox (I think it is held over from my days in university in Boston).  I am not an expert and I don’t pretend to be.  One thing that I like about baseball is that there is always something new to learn and the more that I understand the game, the more there is to appreciate.

I will confess that one of the reasons that I am trying to increase my baseball proficiency is because my grandmother (aka Grandma) loved baseball.  She was a Dodgers.  I’ve been thinking a lot about Grandma lately and missing her very much.  I think that trying to learn more about baseball is a way that I can honor my grandmother in some way.  When I am watching a baseball game or reading statistics that I only sort of understand it makes me feel closer to her.  It might not make sense to anyone else except me and I’m okay with that.

Grandma, I love you and I miss you everyday.
